Crooked Creek Club – a Billy Casper Signature-managed golf club 30 miles north of Atlanta – will undergo a $1.3 million renovation encompassing both the golf course and clubhouse.
The first step in the multi-staged project will be renovating the greens and converting the turf from Bent Grass to Primo Zoysia. The new grass type is a more suitable choice for Crooked Creek’s southern climate as it tolerates shade, thrives in heat and is less susceptible to disease. This change will provide the Club with more sustainable turf through summer heat and an overall stronger plant for future playability. Director of Agronomy Mark Patterson and his team have begun prepping the greens for this renovation.
The course is scheduled to close from June 1 to late August. During the closure, major improvements to the irrigation system are also planned. Additional course enhancements include improving bunkers, leveling tee surfaces and beautifying perimeters to rejuvenate course appearance and playability. A new fleet of maintenance equipment for quality turf care and new golf carts equipped with the latest technology will complete the project.
The practice facility will also get a facelift with the installation of a permanent, high quality mat running along the back edge of the range tee plus new bag stands, chairs and tee dividers.
“This project will transform Crooked Creek from a good course that has lacked necessary attention into a great one with a greens turf product that will lead the industry,” says Matt Wilson, National Director of Operations for Billy Casper Signature. “We know with a greatly improved product, a hardworking on-site team and a loyal, engaged membership base, Crooked Creek Club will be a case study for success. We are anxious for the local market, as well as former members, to give Crooked Creek another look when deciding on club membership.”
Membership opportunities are available. Please contact Philip Herterick for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770.475.2300 ext. 119.
Clubhouse operations will continue while the course is closed and Crooked Creek plans to maintain an active social calendar for its members.
In addition to the course renovations, improvements to the clubhouse are also planned. These include televisions and a fire pit for the outdoor patio, new indoor and outdoor furniture and new flooring in the Presidents Room and Champions Room.
